The snippet that you've included above is pretty clear that Namespaces
in XML 1.1 only applies to XML 1.1 documents, for XML 1.0, you must look
for an answer in Namespaces in XML 1.0 that says [2]:

"The default namespace can be set to the empty string. This has the same
effect, within the scope of the declaration, of there being no default
namespace. "
